Lugums naktij 'Prayer to the night'
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The poem by Juris Helds is hard to translate—like so much Latvian poetry it speaks very freely of natural images. Much of the colour of the text also comes from the shape and character of the Latvian language, especially in the use of the recurring word ‘nakts’ (‘night’). This is an early work dating from the composer’s time as a student.
